PERFORMING ARTS AT OVU

header800x300.jpg


A number of Performing Arts groups offer students opportunities to spread their theatrical and musical wings and soar throughout their academic pursuits at Ohio Valley University. An excellent education involves the whole student, and for those with artistic flair, Performing Arts round out the university experience.

Ohio Valley University Student Theater

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances…
--William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Ohio Valley University’s student theater program brings all the world onto one stage for those who, like Shakespeare’s Jaques, recognize the theatric in every moment. Performing such diverse productions as Little Shop of Horrors and The Diary of Anne Frank, OVU’s Student Theater offers students the opportunity to develop range and depth as they bring life to the stage.

For students inclined to direct, create stage art, and support productions with lighting and sound, the Ohio Valley University Student Theater has a vital role for you!

The A Cappella Singers

In keeping with our Church of Christ heritage, Ohio Valley University enjoys a long tradition with its A Cappella Singers. As OVU’s oldest performing ensemble, A Cappella Singers, an auditioned chorus, performs a wide range of music for unaccompanied voices. From hymns to spirituals to modern music, OVU’s A Cappella Singers perform to critical acclaim.
